Boutique Design Events and Trade Fairs

Tarrytown House Estate, a historic 214-room resort-style hotel located in New York, has completed a $15 million property-wide refresh. 

Spearheaded by Sean Knibb of Venice, California-based Knibb Design, the hotel’s new interiors blend old-world charm with modern and traditional styles. Elements such as custom-designed toile wallpaper were designed for meeting rooms, which at first glance appear traditional, but with closer inspection features contemporary components like skateboards and wine glasses, among other novel items. The tonal-gray, as well as other neutral fabric and paint choices, in the guestrooms and meeting spaces were all designed to bring light and tranquility to the spaces. Modern, custom touches like the Miro-inspired large-scale murals painted on select ceiling spaces add a novel and modern point-of-interest and also tie back to the overarching narrative of modern art and other treasures all coming to fill the rooms and spaces of the hotel.

The King Mansion maintains the original woodwork in its library as well as flooring and doors throughout the ground-floor common spaces. The design provides a bohemian aesthetic, adorned with the aforementioned Miro-inspired ceiling murals, and contemporary and playful touches like crowns juxtaposed on historic black-and-white photography from the surrounding area over the past century. 

The renovation also added a new Cantonese-inspired restaurant, Goosefeather, to the hotel, helmed by celebrity chef Dale Talde. Goosefeather (shown) is located within the King Mansion. The property’s former restaurant will be transformed into a private event space. Accessed through a hidden door, the venue houses a classic bar, dining spaces and lounge spaces with the feel of a historic speakeasy.
